My Many Colored Days

This is a stepstool I decorated for a fundraiser my local library was sponsoring in 2008. The idea was to create a chair based on a children’s (or maybe any) book which would then be auctioned to raise money. I chose My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss and used my own manipulated photography. Most/all…

Struction Stories

Can we pause the de-struction to make way for con-struction? Can we consider “struction stories”? The following are my words. My words are meant to be an explanation of my truths. My truths are constructed by my beliefs which are constructed by my interpretations of my experiences. My experiences as well as my perceptions are…

Statistically Speaking

The long and the short of it- at the end of this blog entry is a call for donors to renew my website. However I can’t in good faith ask for donations without clarifying that I am a month and a half behind on bills, have about 25 dollars in the bank, a paycheck of…

Thoughts on Trauma and Trajectories

Well. Here we are. Let’s see if I can manage to start and finish a blog in one day/sitting. I used to write pages at a time, several times a day, every day. But time and other things have a way of altering one’s trajectory, sometimes temporarily (I hope.) I miss writing, I really do….

Streaming

Some updates, then on to some ramblings! On the Art Front, I’ve been cleaning and reorganizing my art room (again, haha) and have found a great set up (although may turn the table to face the window, as that would add even more to the flow of the room…) and so have been doing a…

Hindsighting

So, New Year, New Me, right? No. Not accurate, for me. New year, yes. And certainly I’m not planning to stay stagnant (quite the opposite), but that doesn’t necessarily indicate a whole new me. I’ll just be modifying the same me that I already am. There are many reasons that I haven’t written in months….
